St Michael's Court, Wales
A new typology for student housing...this proposal in Treforest, Wales promotes student interaction and community through generous communal living, dining and activity spaces.
The new building is formed of stacked modules, rotating in plan around a central staircase. Generous internal spaces are also formed to create communal activity, which spill out into the site.
The existing building will be re-clad in sustainably sourced, zero-maintenance vertical timber boarding to match the new box.
